Recode your representations

"Would you have any objection to developing a more resourceful way to think about the person you have lost so that you could feel good about him or her? Does any part of you object to keeping the good feelings that you received from this other person and letting them enrich your life?"

6. Access a valued experience with the person.

"Think of one of the most special times you had with this person. See him or her as life-size, moving, and over to your left (or whatever driving submodalities the person has). Think of him (her) in the same way as you thought about your old buddy or friend. And even though you have lost him/her, you can still have those good feelings..."

7. Identify the values. To preserve the benefits of that relationship and to use them to move into the future, we add this step.

"As you allow yourself to review all of the good experiences you had with this person, notice the things you valued about her (him): warmth, intimacy, spontaneity, variety, stability, fun, adventure, etc.

"As you identify the values that you do not want to lose from this person, make a symbolic image of all these values and then bring that symbol into you...to keep near to your heart."

8. Check ecology and future pace. "Now imagine going into your future with these values that you received from that person-let these values enrich you and be an ongoing legacy of that person."

9. Test. Now think of that person and notice what you think-and-feel about her/him. See if you can feel as bad and desperate as you did earlier.
